Gastroenterology Lab
Getting Ready
for Your Test

​Prior to your test at The Gastroenterology/Endoscopy Center, read and follow the instructions you received from your doctor. These instructions will give you very important information like when to stop eating and drinking prior to your procedure, how to do the prep (if needed), medicines you should take, and more.

Your doctor will tell you what time to arrive for your test.

It is important for you to fill out the short Health History included in the folder provided to you. Bring the Health History with you the day of your procedure.

For safety reasons, YOU MUST HAVE A RESPONSIBLE ADULT ACCOMPANY YOU HOME (family member or friend). This will be the person who signs your discharge instructions and is responsible for your safety. With the use of sedation medications, it is strongly advised that a responsible person be with you the rest of the day. If you do NOT have a responsible adult to accompany you home, your procedure may be cancelled.
